Cost effective kitchen makeover tips when selling

Planning to sell your home? If your kitchen is looking a bit tired, it could be worth spending some money to brighten it up and make it enticing to potential buyers. Remember, you don't have to spend hundreds on a kitchen makeover.

Here are some tips to save money if you are looking to update or renovate your kitchen:

1. Research

Decide exactly what you need for your dream kitchen. Make a list and rank every factor, this will give you an idea of where to splash the cash and where you can make some cutbacks. Remember, the cheapest option is not always best value. Make sure you know if you are replacing or refurbing the kitchen units – if you are replacing them, make sure anything you buy will last.

2. Visit a kitchen designer

If you have a vision and budget a kitchen designer will be able to help you visualise what you want your kitchen to look like. They will also be able to give you advice and tips on how to save money. You could get high-quality laminate worktops rather than solid surfaces and wall cladding rather than tiles, saving hundreds!

3. Space Saving

If you have a small kitchen use your existing space. You could consider knocking down a wall to add space for storage/utility room, or look into kitchen storage, like revolving carousel shelves or fold away tables!

5. White goods

You can save money if you need to upgrade your appliances. Many leading suppliers offer an alternative brand for less money. Compare the spec and price, also look at other customer reviews and you might just grab yourself a good bargain.

Making sure your kitchen is clean, clutter free and appealing to potential buyers should help you to sell your home quicker — we hope our tips will help you achieve this.
